Why choose psychiatry?
As a psychiatrist you will have a huge positive impact on the
lives of your patients and their carers.
You will face new and interesting challenges every day, but
always be able to face them with the support of your doctor
colleagues and team around you.
You will always be learning and your medical and scientific
knowledge and skills will constantly grow.
You can work in a range of settings, from hospitals to people’s
homes, anywhere in the world.
As you progress through your career, you have more opportunity
to shape the way you work; you can work part time or full time and
can combine your career with a wide range of other interests.
As we continue to learn about the science of mental health, the
brain and about the importance of good mental health, psychiatry is
being recognised as being an important branch of medicine.
